Chapter 2. Exploring the Desktop > The Finder Menu Bar

The Finder Menu Bar

Your TV's remote control has buttons that turn on the TV or change channels. On the Mac, there are several ways to give the computer instructions to do something. The first one I'll talk about is the menu bar, that long, gray-shaded strip with thin horizontal lines that lies at the top of your Mac's screen.

If you've used Windows, you'll see one big difference between the way the menu bar works on the other side and on the Mac. With Windows, each program you use has its own menu bar, so you might find several menu bars across your computer's screen. On a Mac, however, there's only one menu bar, at the very top, which changes to reflect the features of the program currently in use. The advantage is that you only have to point your mouse in one specific place for it to work properly.
